7:05 am
fireworks which started earlier than ever, on thanksgiving night. millions of americans hit the malls in a mad dash to get their hands on hot holiday deals at rock-bottom prices. and abc's john schriffen found himself in the middle of the mayhem and joins us from a kmart in new york city. good morning, john. i saw you tweeted, what a difference a day makes. >> reporter: it is so different here. bianna, good morning. i feel like i can come out of hiding right now because things have certainly calmed down. at least here at this kmart. now, the past two days, everything you can imagine has been flying off the shelves, with early indications that this could be one of the most profitable black fridays for retailers ever. that's, in large part, due to those door-buster deals that had people acting like -- well, i'll let you be the judge. >> here we go. >> reporter: at midnight friday, when the gates went up, the crowds poured into this victoria's secret in tulsa, oklahoma, all for this. a pink, shiny gift bag, filled with perfume and lotions. one of the deals that had black friday shoppers in a frenzy. when these prepaid cell phones
7:06 am
were unveiled at a walmart in georgia, the crowd pounced like a pack of wolves. one woman appears to have someone's hand in her mouth. walmart says no one got hurt. a scramble for dvds at another walmart in san diego. to this rush on a forever 21. >> please, slow down. people are going to get hurt. >> reporter: in massachusetts, a toddler loaded into an ambulance, after police say he was left in a parked car at 1:30 in the morning, while his caregiver went shopping at kmart for a 51-inch tv. in san antonio, police say a man tried to punch his way into this sears, prompting another man to allegedly pull a gun. the los angeles police department deployed hundreds of extra officers and even handed out shopping safety tips in local malls. >> so far, so good for the city of l.a. we've had a stronger presence. so, people can be out there and enjoy the day. >> reporter: many shoppers got just what they came for and had fun doing it. >> it's been crazy. the deals are great.
7:07 am
the lines are long. but it's definitely worth being out here. >> it's fun to me to come out with everybody and just grab things that you can't really afford. i have fun doing it. >> reporter: it looks like consumers are willing to spend more this year. 17% of shoppers spent more than $700. up from just 10% of shoppers last year. and nearly 67% of shoppers went out early for those thanksgiving night deals, instead of waiting until black friday. the national retail federation is predicting a booming holiday. $586 billion in sales, up 4% from last year. now, retailers haven't released their official black friday profits just yet. but the good news for shoppers, if you haven't been out to the stores, many of the deals will last the entire weekend. check out the deals we found at this kmart. these items are more than half price now. this microwave, 59 bucks. and this bike, only $80. still a lot of deals out there to be had. dan and bianna, back to you. >> i think you deserve hazard pay for three days in the mall.
7:08 am
john schriffen, thank you. with the holiday shopping stampede in full effect, what is actually selling? abc's reena ninan is in washington, d.c., with that part of the story. reena, good morning. >> reporter: hi, dan. with sales starting so early this year, retailers tell us they're off to a terrific start this holiday shopping season. it was pretty hard to ignore the deals. and the new gadgets. like your own drone. apple, playing hard to get, wouldn't announce their deals until friday morning. slashing ipads, ipods and accessory prices to compete with stores, like target. offering as much as $60 gift cards with a purchase of certain ipads. and some of the deals, like at best buy, were announced via twitter. so, what were the big sellers in this year's black friday sales? >> pretty similar to last year. electronics, video games, tvs, toys. >> reporter: bradsdeals.com says
7:09 am
the most popular deal was a vizio 60-inch hd-tv, for $688 at walmart. target staffers tell us board games, furby. yes, furby is back. along with traditional favorites, barbie. also hard to keep stocked, some believe this year's hot ticket item, wii u, watch tv and play games all at the same time. >> they may come in to check out the deals and find out something else is wonderful that they need to have. or makes a great gift for someone else. >> reporter: like brookstone's a.r. drone. gathering images from above isn't just for the cia or the pentagon. this quadracopter is filled with cameras that can film above and below. no major price slashing here. but brookstone says that didn't matter. they're flying off the shelves. cyber monday may be a thing of the past because these deals started so early. walmart says they'll match prices bought from things from november 1st to christmas day. i bought a $10 slow-cooker.
7:10 am
i don't even know what you cook in a slow-cooker. >> but it somehow looked appealing to you. >> that's right. >> great to see you. we're going to turn, now, to the passing of a tv icon. larry hagman died yesterday, suffering complications from his battle with cancer. the star of "dallas" and "i dream of jeanie" will be remembers most for his most famous character, j.r. ewing, the most despised and loved villain in tv history. he was as charismatic as he was evil. he was one of the most colorful and villainized characters on television, j.r. ewing. >> you'll find all kinds of ways to skin a cat. >> reporter: when larry hagman took the role on, it was only supposed to last a few weeks. but "dallas" became a hit and the role, a part of television history. in his last sitdown interview with abc station wfaa, hagman revealed -- >> i was thinking we could get six shows out of this and walk away and go on vacation. >> reporter: no vacation, as
7:11 am
hagman's character, the mischievous oil tycoon and his antics, made "dallas" one of the biggest hits in the '80s. and recently, hagman and his co-stars were reunited as the show, just retooled for modern times. >> i hate to hit a man below the belt. but you know i will. >> reporter: he also made the cowboy hat cool to wear. >> well, i'll second that. >> reporter: at the age of 81, hagman died last night due to complications from throat cancer. the actor's family released a statement saying, larry's family and close friends had joined him in dallas for the thanksgiving holiday. when he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. it was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. in 1995, hagman battled cirrhosis of the liver and was later given a transplant. hagman himself revealed his illness was the result of heavy drinking that started when he was a teen. >> i'd like to be drug kicking and screaming into another 13 years. >> reporter: the texas native served in the air force before he came into our living rooms.
7:12 am
starring in five, hit television series throughout his 50-year career. but no doubt, before making his name as j.r., he hit the jackpot in 1965, when he played another iconic role. major nelson, barbara eden's television master in "i dream of jeannie." >> i must have gone further into orbit than i thought. >> reporter: hagman will not soon be forgotten. texas legend, indeed. and his co-star, linda gray, who played his wife, she issued a statement saying, larry hagman was my best friend for 35 years. he was the pied piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew. they remained friends after the show. >> a real giant. he was a giant. all right. let's check the forecast, now. get it over to ginger zee. good morning. >> good morning. not so dallas-like forecast. this one comes at you from northern michigan. and this is where we start. ishpeming, michigan, in the u.p. there. a whiteout yesterday. this was a very common scene along the shores of lake superior. see how choppy it looks.
7:13 am
very, very messy there. they picked up 8 to 12 inches. cornucopia, wisconsin, had a foot of snow. and duluth, minnesota, about 5.4 inches. this is about normal for them. some cases, even a little below average so far as far as lake-effect snow. so, they're just catching up. we'll call it that. where does it go now? lake-effect snow is coming into erie to buffalo. that's where you've got that 3 to 6-inch range. a little more higher in the mountains or the hills there. and you see here, that white from syracuse to watertown, that's also in the 3-inch to 6-inch range. lake-effect snow in the eastern great lakes, and plenty of cold to go with it. you get really strong winds. and 3 in st. cloud. minneapolis is 12 right now. 26 in chicago. it feels like 14 in chicago. so, windchill is going to be a factor, especially before winds relax in some of the great lakes areas and the northern plains, of course. and we're not going to leave out the south because you don't get away with any reprieve from the cold. look at pensacola. this is tomorrow morning, 36. savannah, 35. 34, jacksonville. those freeze warnings staying in place. and one last look at another
7:14 am
storm that hit the pacific northwest. seattle had over an inch. and now moves to snow in higher elevations. >> some photos that i get on facebook and twitter just strike me. this was one. this is from queens, new york. you can see a plane coming into jfk and that brilliant sun. a really nice way to look at it. there's a little fog and low-lying cloud cover, too. so, just beautiful. thank you to peter for that. back to dan and bianna.
7:15 am
>> thank you, ginger. appreciate it. for many of us, the holidays are not only an excuse to shop, but also to eat a lot. i'm still full from my second thanksgiving dinner, which i had last night. there's a new study that says we're not just adding pounds. we're also changing the way we think about our weight. >> that's right. our concept of the ideal weight has ballooned since 1990, rising by more than ten pounds for both men and women. and still, only one in six americans say they're at their ideal weight. so, here to make sense of all of this is abc news senior medical contributor, dr. jennifer ashton. great to see you. >> good morning, you guys. you, too. >> not only are americans gaining weight. but their concept of the ideal weight is going up, as well. how alarming is that to you, as a doctor? good and bad to this, like any >> well, look. good and bad to this, like any story. first of all, this is a gallup poll. so, a telephone survey. we have greater acceptance.
7:16 am
so, maybe a lower stigma associated with being overweight or fat because there are more people who are overweight in this country. on the bad side, it is no secret, we know there are clear medical risks that accompany being overweight that range from an increase in certain types of cancers to an increase in the risk of diabetes and heart disease. and more people will be facing these risks. >> so, what do we do during the holidays. we're trying to be conscious of our weight and trying to be healthy. but there's plates of cookies everywhere. what's your tips for navigating these land minds? >> i think you're going to like my tip, dan. don't worry about the holiday parties. worry what you do the other days of the year. we have to be realistic here. there's the ideal. it would be ideal if no one had a problem with their body weight. but the reality is very different. most of us do. so, when you're talking about that one holiday or one or two holiday parties, basic tips. use your common sense. but enjoy yourself. you want to watch your portions. you want to watch the calories you consume in liquid form. those are really, really -- pack a punch. and take a long walk before and
7:17 am
after to burn some calories. >> i was worried. i thought you were going to advise me to put out a plate of carrots at thanksgiving. >> no. see? i wouldn't do that. enjoy it. worry about the rest of the year. >> and quickly, for children this time of year. we know that the childhood obesity rate continues to increase, as well. what are tips for families, not only for the adults, but for kids in the home? >> when you're talking about children, we have children, it's important to start educating them from a very early age. the health is about what's on the inside. it's not about that number on the scale. you can be slightly overweight and be very healthy. and make no mistake about it, you can be thin and be very unhealthy. so, you want to start teaching children from a very young age that it really is about inner health, not that number. >> good tips. >> thank you. i'm going to go for a quick walk. now, to that giant but somewhat neglected powerball jackpot. in the midst of black friday and thanksgiving, the jackpot has quietly grown to 325 million bucks. the drawing is tonight. and if there's no winner, the next one could set a record. abc's clayton sandell has more. >> reporter: forget the electronics, the clothes, the toys. the really big prize this
7:18 am
weekend, powerball, with a jackpot worth 325 million bucks. but for the first time, a huge powerball drawing is hitting on a major holiday weekend. putting a dent in ticket sales. why do you think sales are not as good? >> i would think with black friday and with businesses being closed right now. >> reporter: here in colorado, 1 of 42 powerball states, a big drawing in august cold $3.5 million in tickets. this time around, sales are down to only $1.9 million. officials blame the holiday. you got a good deal on the tv? aaron o'hare and brooklyn garcia don't normally play powerball. but after scoring a good parking spot and a deal on a 55-inch flat-screen. >> we are feeling kind of lucky. so, we might actually have to try it out today. think we're going to have to try to win the big ticket. >> reporter: to entice more players, the idaho lottery offered a black friday special. buy a state raffle ticket, get one powerball ticket free. any idea what you would do with $325 million?
7:19 am
>> i would donate some. buy a nice house. buy a cool car. take my girlfriend out. quite a few times. yeah. >> reporter: if nobody wins tonight, lottery officials say the next drawing on wednesday could top a whopping $425 million. odds of winning, 1 in 175 million. good luck. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> i like those odds. we got three tickets, the producers bought us. if i don't show up for work tomorrow morning, don't be suspicious. >> you're splitting that with me. >> absolutely. well, it was a bizarre sight. i think we can all agree to that. >> hilarious. >> imagine walking down a busy street and suddenly seeing a camel running straight at you. >> the camel was on the lam from the circus. and abc's john muller is here with more on the story. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, guys. roadways around los angeles are famous and at times infamous for a lot of reasons. yesterday, a new one for that
7:20 am
list. a camel on the run. his name is abdullah. he's not a movie star. but he's a performer. and he turned plenty of heads. who knew camels were so fast? who knew you could find out right on this los angeles county street? that's abdullah, the camel. those are his handlers, sprinting to catch him, getting left in the dust. >> there was like ten people running after this camel. it was craziness on the streets. i heard kids yelling and screaming. >> of course, a middle eastern guy has to go and spot a camel. >> reporter: ahmed ahmad had a sense of humor. but it wasn't so funny when the camel headed straight for traffic. >> workers were rushing after the camel. and one of the workers was trying to stop traffic. >> reporter: in the end, it wasn't speedy legs or a weapon that corralled the camel. it was a carrot that lured him in. abdullah headed to a gas station. it wasn't revealed if he preferred regular or premium. camels can cross the desert on one tank of gas.
7:21 am
or is that water? >> people were surprised. not every day, do people see a camel in a gas station. >> reporter: douglas ramos, the co-owner of the circus, says it all started inside the tent, where the camels were doing their daily exercise. >> i guess somebody dropped a wrench. and one of them got scared. >> reporter: that was abdullah, who saw a hint of daily and took off faster than a black friday bargain-hunter. >> you know, we do this every day. and this time, i guess, he just wanted to go shopping or something. i don't know. >> reporter: all is well that ends well. no one was hurt. no people, not the camel, no traffic accidents. the circus even went on last night with abdullah playing his part. but it was that dash for daylight that will be remembered as his most memorable role, for sure. bianna? dan? >> i wonder if people in l.a. thought they were filming a movie or something. >> probably would have been, oh, camel on the road. >> typical saturday morning. >> the best part of that story, when you thought it couldn't get more absurd, you start interviewing a guy with a clown face. that was awesome. thank you, john. appreciate it. coming up here on the broadcast, the american college professor convicted for drug possession in argentina.

7:30 am
photographers. and this was no different. the oscar winner was trying to protect her 4-year-old daughter. so, how will the fight affect her ongoing custody battle? good morning, america. i'm bianna golodryga. >> and i'm dan harris. good morning, again. it's saturday, november 24th. check out this video. it's of nba stars dribbling a christmas tune. it has gone wildly viral. how did they figure out how to do this? we're going to take you behind the scenes, coming up. >> that's really cool. and adele has produced hit after hit, winning grammys and topping charts. but she's also a big hit in a very unusual character. one you probably won't expect. >> not sure she's happy about that. we'll tell you about that in a few minutes. first, the mystery involving the esteemed american college professor, that south american gangsters, the drug deal and the beautiful bikini model. it is quite a yarn. and abc's mark greenblatt is here with more. good morning, sir. >> reporter: he's an acclaimed oxford-educated scientist, who said he just wanted to find love. but he apparently left his
7:31 am
brains at home when he boarded a plane for bolivia, believing he was about to rendezvous with a famous bikini model. you're looking at the model whose allure would land this university of north carolina professor in a south american jail. convicted on drug smuggling charges. denise milano is the winner of the 2007 miss bikini world competition. she's also someone argentinean prosecutors say scam artists used images of to snare paul frampton in something called a honey trap, where the professor was duped into thinking he would meet the model and boarded a plane to bolivia. milano never showed up. instead, frampton says he was met by a man, who gave him a suitcase, and told to take it to milano in argentina. once there, he tried to board a plane home for north carolina,
7:32 am
with the same bag, where police found four pounds of cocaine. >> he was well-known. distinguished. filled with physics and scientific areas. when it comes to common sense, he scored a zero. >> reporter: an argentinean court sentenced him this week to serve four years and eight months, after prosecutors revealed text messages they say frampton sent intended for the model. saying, i'm worried about the sniffer dogs. the university has since cut off his salary, a move that prompted more than 60 of frampton's colleagues at carolina to sign this letter of protest. saying, as more information about his case becomes available, it becomes more and more obvious that paul was the innocent, although very gullible, victim of a scam. from prison, frampton said it does seem unfair that an innocent scam victim is treated as a professional drug smuggler. but the court in argentina ruled otherwise. >> ignorance of the law, as we all know, is no excuse. >> reporter: frampton's lawyer in argentina had no comment on the conviction, saying she wanted to see the official ruling first.
7:33 am
but apparently frampton has done this before. "the telegraph" of london, said he met a chinese woman online. and flew there to marry her. but when he showed up, apparently, in china, she took one look at him and, sadly, said no more nuptials. >> the whole story is sad. thank you, though, for bringing it to us. we appreciate it. mark greenblatt. time for a look at the other headlines this morning. we go back to alex perez, in for ron this morning. >> good morning to you. in the news this morning, the holiday shopping season got to a strong start. with many stores reporting better-than-expected black friday sales. walmart said it sold 5,000 items per second, from 8:00 p.m. to midnight on thanksgiving. tv legend larry hagman has died. he was, at one time, considered the most famous actor in the world for his role as j.r. ewing on "dallas." hagman died of complications from his battle with cancer. he was 81. elizabeth smart is getting ready to tell the story of her abduction a decade ago. smart is working on a memoir about being held captive, her

7:36 am
[ dribbling ] >> how cool is that? we got some behind-the-scenes footage from the nba. and as you can see, the players weren't all together. they stood in front of a high-tech screen to shoot their parts. and keeping time was a lot like playing the video game guitar hero. they followed a color-coded monitor, telling them when to bounce the ball and on which side. many of you at home don't know dan and i do that, as well. we're actually not sitting next to each other. >> the whole broadcast is a special effect. >> it's actually not. coming up on "good morning america," fallout from the hollywood brawl. will halle berry's custody battle be helped or hurt by the custody fight between her fiance and her ex-boyfriend? and lady gaga getting some unexpected visitors for thanksgiving. that's coming up on "pop news." keep it here on "gma." we'll be right back.

paparazzi. but the very public thanksgiving brawl between her ex-boyfriend and her fiance could impact the bitter custody battle over her 4-year-old daughter. and abc's bazi kanani is here with that story. good morning, bazi. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. halle berry has been in this public, nasty custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, ever since they split up more than two years ago. and just when it seemed to finally be settled, a dramatic, new incident that could change the outcome. >> are you okay? >> reporter: the latest pictures show halle berry's fiance, french actor olivier martinez, holding x-rays and nursing an injured hand, that still appeared swollen friday morning, when he stopped into a liquor store at 7:00 a.m. its very bitter cross-continental child custody battle over her young daughter, nahla. >> who started the fight? >> reporter: that may have led to the bone-breaking brawl
7:42 am
inside the actress' home on thanksgiving day. police say berry called 911 thursday morning, after a fistfight broke out between martinez, a former boxer, and her ex-boyfriend, french model gabriel aubry, who was there to drop off their 4-year-old daughter for the holiday. both men ended up in the hospital. martinez told police he fought in self-defense. but aubry was more seriously hurt, taken by ambulance to be treated for broken ribs and a possible head injury. >> the fact is, if you shove someone, that doesn't give them license to pummel you back. and that ultimately may be what gabriel aubry argues to a judge. >> reporter: aubry is currently the only one facing charges for misdemeanor investigation of battery, after martinez declared a citizen's arrest. but legal analysts say that doesn't hold the same weight, as an arrest initiated by police. >> it ultimately may be a he said/he said. while halle berry was a witness, she's not going to be viewed as an unbiased witness.
7:43 am
>> reporter: the case could have serious consequences. just weeks ago, a judge refused berry's request to move to france. a request she made because there's tougher laws against paparazzi there. aubry has successfully argued the move would unfairly separate him from his daughter. but now -- >> california law is very clear. if a parent engages in an act of domestic violence or some sort of altercation, that can be used against them in denying custody. >> reporter: an actress' real-life drama that's back in the headlines could go back to family court. aubry is scheduled to appear in court december 13th. until then, a restraining order will keep him at least 100 yards away from berry, martinez and his daughter. now, he's only facing a misdemeanor charge. so, he's not likely to go to jail. neither aubry, berry nor martinez has replied to our request for comment. so, they're not talking about it. but a lot of other people are. >> an innocent 4-year-old in the middle of all this. thank you. great to see you. coming up on "good morning america," why adele's music is
